My Mood: In Remembrance of BobbyB
Arrow In Remembrance of BobbyB

I am sad to say that I must now add BobbyB to his own thread. He passed away after a 17 year battle with ALS, during which he provided information and education to hundreds of patients and their families through tireless campaigning and advocacy. I hope others will take up his legacy, he will be sorely missed.
